|The Western Pennsylvania Hospital School of Nursing uses Assessment Technologies Institute LLC (ATI) for standardized testing, including the School's pre-admission test and tests administered to students as part of their School curriculum.
A Preadmission Conference is also required of applicants.
Attending a Preadmission Conference is an enrollment requirement. It's designed to give you more detailed information about the nursing school experience in general and attending our nursing program in particular.
Many Preadmission Conferences are scheduled to follow the ATI-TEAS testing so that both can be completed in one day. Please see the schedule for dates and times. Please contact the School to register.
Creating Your ATI Testing Number and Preadmission Conference
You need to open an account with ATI (Assessment Technologies Institute, LLC) to create your personal testing registration number. This is a FREE account. You need to do this prior to coming for your ATI-TEAS test, mentioned in your application letter. When you come for your ATI-TEAS test you will need to have your number with you to register to take the exam. You will need this number now and each time you take a future ATI exam within our program. You will want to give attention to directions on how to print a copy of your number once you have created it. In the future, if you forget your ID number, you can retrieve your login information by using the "Forgot Password" feature. This ID number will not change; you need to register only once.
The following are the directions to get you started on creating your registration number. You can open the free account with ATI by going to www.atitesting.com and clicking on "Create New Account". Follow the screen prompts. When completing the institutions section you will find our school listed as “Western PA Hospital SON.” After you have registered on this site your personal ID will be displayed under "Account Information". At this screen, you will have the opportunity to print your ATI paper/pencil ID number. You should print and retain this information. Please keep your ATI paper/pencil ID number until notified by the School of Nursing regarding acceptance. If accepted, you need to keep this ID number since you will use it throughout the two years of our nursing program.
